18th Amendment under attack

By Dr. Faheem Abro,

JPMC NICH and NICVD were working in much better way under Sindh government.NICVD getting billions of budget providing a free medical facility in the whole province inaugurated its units in the whole Sindh where 24 hours doctors are available to provide free service in the best environment.Jinnah Hospital Karachi is not far from above-mentioned services in any mean.It has been producing best postgraduates and providing best services freely.Cyberknife is the advanced technology to cure the cancer patients which is Asia’s first free unit treating patients without any charge.NICH worked amazingly provided the best health care facility to the children of Sindh.The most important thing is that no single corruption charge or scandal ever surfaced against these institutions .According to the constitution bill passed by the two-thirds majority should be implemented as the assembly is the mother of all the laws.But it has become misfortune of this country, with non -elected individuals have abrogated constitution and amendments.According to the 18th Amendment above-mentioned institutions should have been working under provincial govt: but recently supreme court of Pakistan has issued a verdict against the 18th Amendment and these institutions are given to federation.According to me, it is not the only attack on 18th amendment but also policy to tone down PPP govt as these institutions made a brighter image of PPP. Apart from this, such a verdict will create administrative and structural problems for the employees of these institutions What will be the fate of Doctors who were promoted under Jinnah Sindh medical university?What will be the fate of Board of directors working under Sindh Govt? Moreover, the future of these institutions looks in trouble in the rapidly shrinking economy of federal Govt: Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has already shown his concern in national assembly saying that, how will you provide the budget to these institutions when you are seeking money from the world? People will ask me a question regarding such verdict against the 18th Amendment .
